  • Not that quick because my son was in the hospital for the first 3 weeks of his life. But soon after he cam home he got a cold. My older son is in school and he came home with a cold and gave it to his baby brother.

  • no...none of mine but they were all hospitalized with jaundice though right after birth. Has something to do with my blood type. They always have to be under the lights for 3 days. My kids actually don't get sick as often as most kids pretty good immune systems I guess.

    Hope your LO gets better...just that time of season.

  • The only thing my 3 had after birth was jaundice-- and for all 3 it did clear up on its own.

  • My Son got pinkeye too but he was 5 weeks. They gave me eye drops & it was gone in a jiffy. Call your Pediatrician if your concern worsens.

  • One son was fine, one never left the hospital and my youngest was not released for 9 weeks after he was born. My Mom said I had chicken poz at 10 days old. Stuff happens you can't control. Try and no0t worry.
